APA Seeks Input On Emergency Project Regulations

APA officeThe Adirondack Park Agency Board authorized staff at its January meeting to hold public hearings and accept public comment for proposed rules that would establish emergency project regulations.  The rules would define emergencies as events or conditions that present an immediate threat to life or property and specific storm events that are declared emergencies by federal or state officials.  The regulations would expedite approval for land use or development qualifying as emergency projects that directly address the remediation or recovery of property impacted from an emergency.

The Adirondack Park Agency has scheduled two public hearings to explain the proposed regulations and accept public comment.  The hearings are scheduled for:

March 4, 2015, 6:00 p.m.

Adirondack Park Agency
1133 State Route 86
Ray Brook, New York

March 5, 2015, 2:00 p.m.

Department of Environmental Conservation
625 Broadway, Room 129
Albany, New York

The Agency will also accept written comment on this proposed regulation until March 21, 2015.  Comments may be submitted by email to [email protected] or addressed to:

Jennifer McAleese, Senior Attorney
NYS Adirondack Park Agency
PO Box 99
Ray Brook, NY 12977
